Underwater Locator Beacons for VDR

Posted by Irina Tabakina

RJE International announced a new line of underwater locator beacons for Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) on large ships.  The ELP-362M series of beacons is mounted on a ship’s black box to facilitate location and recovery of data analysis, in the event of an accident. As of July 1, 2014 the IMO (International Maritime Organization ) requires that all new voyage data recorders be fitted with  90 day battery life beacons, such as RJE’s  ELP-362M90 Underwater Locator Beacon.
